(Gibson) Britpop legends Blur will be recognized at the U.K.'s version of the Grammys, the Brits. Damon Albarn and crew will receive the prestigious Outstanding Contribution to Music award next year.

BRITs chairman David Joseph told Music Week : "Blur are as popular today as they have always been. They've always felt like the new guard, constantly pushing the boundaries, but incredibly it is 20 years since the release of Leisure, their first album. I've long felt they would be worthy winners their contribution to British music is immense."

The BRIT Awards will be held February 21 at the O2 Arena in London. more on this story
